FreedomWorks Launches Campaign Against Secret Socialized Medicine Provision in Budget

Washington, DC –  Included in President Obama’s budget is a $635 billion ‘down payment’ for health care reform.  President Obama does not get into details on what his healthcare reform would be, but he never the less asks for hundreds of billions of dollars to be pre-approved for it.  This money would no doubt be used to centralize health care decisions with bureaucrats in Washington and expand bankrupt entitlements programs.

FreedomWorks Cheers Introduction of Generic Biologics Bill

Washington, D.C. – FreedomWorks is encouraged by the efforts of House Energy and Commerce Chairman Henry Waxman (D, CA-30) and Health Subcommittee ranking member Nathan Deal, (R, GA-9) to promote competition and reduce the costs of health care by creating a streamlined process for the approval of generic biologic drugs, the next generation of life saving drugs for millions of Americans.  Waxman and Deal this week introduced a bill that would allow the Food and Drug Administration to approve generic biologic drugs in a timely manner to ensure that Americans have access to the latest life-saving therapies at competitive prices.

State of the Union? Nothing socialism or the Messiah can't fix!

Let’s start with the good part of President Obama’s State of the Union speech last night, since that’s a much shorter task: He said his administration has “identified $2 trillion in savings over the next decade.” (A decent start against the $3.25 trillion he just spent in one single piece of legislation, but just wait until he tries to gore the sacred cows of members of Congress.)

One More-and Big-Reason to Oppose the Stimulus

If you thought Tom Daschle’s healthcare plans would be gone with his resignation, think again.  He’s given us one more reason to oppose the stimulus.  It creates a new bureaucracy that will make sure your doctor is doing what the government deems appropriate.  This policy is right out of Daschle’s book on healthcare, Critical: What We Can Do About the Health-Care Crisis.

Key Vote "No" H.R. 2: Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to VOTE NO on H.R. 2: the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009.  This legislation calls for spending $33 billion over the next five years to expand coverage of the SCHIP program.  At a time when our nation is facing record-breaking deficits in the trillions of dollars, expanding programs and spending more should not be on the agenda.

Model for health-care reform?

BY Matt Kibbe

Is Tom Daschle the 2009 version of Ira Magaziner? Mr. Daschle, named as President-elect Barack Obama's health and human services secretary, will attempt to create a universal health-care system just as Ira Magaziner attempted under the Clinton administration. In 1993, Mr. Magaziner helped write and push a bill that would have nationalized health care. The plans and tactics may be different, but both men have the same ends - to drastically increase government control over our health care.

INSIDE THE BELTWAY

BY John McCaslin

Could've been shot Inside the Beltway has received New Year's greetings from Lawrence Lindsey, former economic adviser to President Bush, who, due to a sluggish economy, was abruptly shown the door in the middle of the holiday season. "But then, this was not a normal holiday season for us," Mr. Lindsey writes from Walt Disney World in Florida, where his family went into seclusion with Goofy, Daffy and Donald Duck. "Some of you may have assumed that our stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge was a sign that Washington was starting to bug us," writes the president's fall guy. "Washington is enough to make anyone go ape after a while." But Mr. Lindsey stresses that Mr. Bush told him it was nothing personal. After all, he quotes the president as saying, "You helped me win a tough election; you developed an economic plan that was needed and effective; you provided sound advice to me during very tough times. In short, you did your job with distinction and class, and I am most grateful." Besides his three children, Mr. Lindsey says his wife, Sue, "is quite happy to have me at home more. At the holiday senior staff dinner at the White House she was seated next to the president and thanked him for sending me back home. She followed that up with, 'Stalin would have shot him.'" Next up for Mr. Lindsey is establishing a consulting business, teaming up with his former deputy Marc Sumerlin, who departed the Bush camp by his own choosing in August. "Hopefully I will be able to really take advantage of the new lower tax rates," Mr. Lindsey points out. Saddam's bomb maker It might not be the actual smoking gun President Bush needs to start an overthrow of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, but Saddam's bomb maker will appear on national television tonight to tell the American public everything he knows about Iraq's deadly arsenal. Khidir Hamza spent 20 years developing Iraq's atomic weapons program [the one Saddam says doesn't exist] and tells all in the new book "Saddam's Bombmaker: The Terrifying Inside Story of the Iraqi Nuclear and Biological Weapons Agenda," co-authored by Jeff Stein, veteran Washington reporter and editor of Congressional Quarterly Homeland Security. The story and its evidence are unlike any coming out of Iraq, for two reasons: Mr. Hamza knows so much firsthand, and he is one of only a few who has lived to tell it. For those who haven't read "Saddam's Bombmaker," the History Channel will summarize the book tonight from 10 to 11. It begins with the weapons developer's harrowing escape from Iraq and his first encounter with skeptical CIA agents. He then spills Iraq's beans, painting an unprecedented portrait of Saddam - his unrivaled power, drunken rages, murder of underlings and his women. You might even spot a smoking gun or two. Long war A search is under way for Vietnam veterans who died as a result of their service but who do not meet the government requirements for having their names added to the 58,229 inscribed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, or the Wall. These additional "heroes" will be honored at the Fifth Annual In Memory Day ceremony at the Wall on April 21. More than 800 fallen veterans were recognized during past ceremonies. "Each year, thousands of service members and civilians die as a result of Agent Orange exposure or other physical and emotional wounds from the war," explains Jan C. Scruggs, founder and president of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, which was responsible for building the Wall. Family members and friends should obtain an application to submit names no later that Friday, Feb. 28, by calling 202/393-0090 or by visiting www.vvmf.org. West Virginia calendar Faced with a Medicaid-driven budget crisis, West Virginia Gov. Bob Wise is demanding cheaper "Canadian prices" on pharmaceuticals sold in his state. But observers here in Washington say if Mr. Wise, a Democrat, looked further at the Canadian system, he'd realize that Canadian-style health care is a prescription for disaster. Which is why Citizens for a Sound Economy tomorrow will send "Canadian Healthcare First Aid Kits" to all of West Virginia's legislators and the governor, hoping it will stop Mr. Wise's plans. We're told the first-aid kit includes a "five-year calendar," so West Virginia citizens can schedule their emergency surgery at a pace consistent with the delays Canadian citizens must endure; and a bandage, aspirin and Alka-Seltzer, to hold them over while they wait. *John McCaslin, a nationally syndicated columnist, can be reached at 202/636-3284 or jmccaslin@washingtontimes.com.
